Plot synopsis

Sound-making of a film is a complicated process. A Foley Artist is a biographic documentary of Master Hu Ding-yi, the most experienced Foley artist in Taiwan. Hu has an inventive talent in reproducing sound effects. In his mind, every material and every object can become a tool for Foley. Hu devoted 40 years of his life to the film industry, witnessing the rise of digital sound effects. Hu faced a significant career crisis and had to fight to remain in the industry. While exploring Hu's character, the documentary extends to give a broader perspective of the development of the entire Chinese-speaking film industry in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China.
